Joining CRG from Smoking Goose, Chef Natalie brings a palpable sense of respect to the menu with a passion for sustainability and quality. Working closely with CRG Executive Chef Carl Chambers, Natalie hopes to bring a healthy option to start the day and set a standard of quality meals in the Northside community. "I'm always asking people for their opinion about any dish I've created. What do you like? What do you dislike?" she says. "What would make it better in your opinion? I compile all that information and create each dish based on all the opinions I've received. I want to be able to produce dishes that everyone can enjoy." Mollie Eley, Goose's co-owner, attests to the chef 's work ethic: "Natalie is such a hard worker," she says. "She has such enthusiasm and passion for her profession. Her energy is contagious." Personal favorite dishes include an invigorating and cleansing Citrus Beet Smoothie, the Cold Smoked Salmon plate, which is served on a toasted baguette with garlic cream cheese and pickled onion, and the truly otherworldly Egg Tart, which is a bit like a quiche, only three times as deep, 10 times as fluffy, and bursting with tart and savory notes that elevate this plate well beyond the quotidian. e Greek Yogurt Granola Bowl is a meal in itself, but if, like us, you are greedy and hungry, you will take a few bites, save the rest for a snack and dive into one of the many outstanding savory dishes. Here it is easy to mix breakfast and lunch dishes: if you feel in need of the cleansing burst of a Super Greens Smoothie and the more substantial protein hit of Poke Tuna, all you have to do is ask. 83
